It seems like a good idea to replace them with something 
better in any case, if for no other reason than to avoid 
having such doubts arise.  If the fdlibm (attribution only) 
license looks fine, these look good.  Otherwise there are 
also liberal license implementations that while not as good 
as fdlibm are still better than the current implementation:
